In an accidental firing, a CISF officer today injured his junior colleague during a mock-drill being conducted in the Delhi Metro here.

The incident occurred at around 10:40 AM at Rohini West metro station when a mock-drill was being conducted by CISF, Delhi Police and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC).

During the drill, sub-inspector Sitaram fired an accidental shot from his 9mm pistol which hit constable Riptesh Tripathy in the lower abdomen.

He was immediately taken to a hospital and is said to be out of danger.

"The sub-inspector has been suspended and a court of Inquiry has been ordered by the force," a senior official said, ruling out any foul play in the incident.

The injured trooper, posted for Delhi Metro security, is now recuperating in a city hospital, the official said.
